    LOL! Yeah yeah...

    I do have a motorcycle, btw. A '71 Yamaha 360cc Endruo. Love the thing, but I won't ride it in the city, which is why I got this.

    130/70 - 12. Standard 12" scooter tire. Good for me as it makes them easier to replace. I'll try to get some better pics...

    That chrome orange thing (fav color), it would be so nice to have some more near the middle of the bike, including that part which is like a circle.
    Anyway, great looking bike, I hope it serves you well.

    Here's something you might like then, Trust. This is last years model. This years model uses the same color scheme as the SE (so, black on black, matte or metallic, and only the red/blue/purple has anodized orange parts) but still uses the same base design as in the pic.

    Problem with it (and with the Emmo Knight GTS) is that box under the seat. It houses the main controller and the battery. With the EM1 SE they moved the controller.

    To be honest, I bought the one I did with the intention to, one day, paint all the blue to match the above color scheme. My buddy suggested painting the blue to a candy blue, and doing carbon fiber for the black parts. I haven't the balls to do the candy blue, but the carbon fiber... I liked that idea. I could grab some carbon fiber vinyl which would be really cheap to do.

    I don't know if it is because I just woke up, but, something I don't like about this scheme. It just doesn't sit well with me.

    Personally I don't like the windshield color. I wish I could replace it, but it only comes in that one color, and I can't seem to find a viable replacement, so if I want to change it I might have to paint it. Something else I've thought of was to reverse the matte blue / matte black scheme.

    Oh, and something might be jumping out at you is the back tire. The old models, like the one in the pic above, front is 12", back is 10", which is why it looks off. The new ones use 12" for both.

    So.. I pulled the trigger the instant my local shop got it back in stock:

    [​IMG]

    Most retailers are being smart, and selling it as a bundle. In this case it comes with Mario Kart 8. While I don't personally play it the niece and nephew get a kick out of it, so.... why not. Going to pick up Zelda on Monday, plus another set of controllers. Plus whatever else I might find useful.

    Also pre-ordered this:

    Oh.. and this:
    DDE_PC_Pack_Art_ENG.jpg

    Yes.. I bought both the PS4 and PC versions. Gives me options. ;)

    Stroke of luck, really. I was on my lunch break at work, and I just happened to visit a site called Now In Stock looking for something else, and someone pointed out that Best Buy was restocked in the online store.

    I'm still figuring out if I should buy a Nintendo Switch or not, right now I think the consoles I have are enough. I mean, the Switch does have some good games on it, especially Pokemon which I'm a big fan of, but I think I'll give it some time till the catalogue is nicely fleshed out before I buy one.

    Very cheap and perhaps the most economical printer out there.

    Yes, not exactly the real deal, but hey, this is what I Can afford, this is what I get. (my photos from my instagram account) No, I don't know why the rocket-ship was the appropriate background either. PS. '64 Continental.
